    Can't wait to open pool

    Hi all!

    I bought and had a pool installed in the fall. Included in the installation was winterizing. Never got in the water. Now I'm looking forward to spring and opening the pool!

    I hope to learn a bunch now, so I'm ready for 'opening day' and all summer.

    Didn't like installer. Not liking manufacturer. :(
    Love TFP :)

    Welcome to TFP. Take this time to read pool school and ordering a good test kit and you'll have a great pool ownership experience!

    Pool info: FROZEN - Really big icy kind of frozen - in Michigan's Thumb

    Above ground oval 18' wide X 36' long ( I think )
    Only accessory so far is a solar cover - still in the original container.

    Plan to add a deck and some type of solar water heater.

    We moved from a house with lake access and I promised my wife a pool. It only took 15 years!
